Thanks - I PM'd him two days back, then got bored of waiting and thought I should just post anyway. I suspect he's busy wink.gif

And so it begins

The project name is not finalized so suggestions are welcome - I thought of thief because it dual wields and it steals all my money!

I am working on a huge monster build that will showcase CaseLabs newest case - the monster TX10. This monster case can fit two SR-2 (HPTX) systems with full water cooling. As shown it could fit multiple Mo-Ra 140x9 raditors, or 6 140.4 radiators. It can even fit front mounted 140.5 radiators.

The main feature will be two giant custom waterfall reservoirs that will occupy the front bays.

Here is the current hardware that I have to go in:

Unboxing Videos and Pics

I picked up the case directly from Jim - so the packing was reduced in order to fit in my car. If you buy one of these it will come in two boxes as it's packed a lot more securely.

Building the case

As Jim knew the case was going to be powder coated by FTWPC he saved FTW the hassle of sandblasting it by skipping the CaseLabs normal black/white powder coat. Because of this the case is not only in it's raw bare aluminum state, but it also is less assembled than normal in order to save on time taking everything apart.

The Pedestal frame consist of top, bottom, front and back that are screwed together with countersunk screws

These are the spring clips that hold the panels on - they hold the panels tight, while still be pretty easy to remove for changing your loop up

Here's a quick video of the partially assembled case

Choosing colors for the powder coat

To make sure I was making the right choice on the color I decided to get some card and tape it to the frame. I removed the acrylic window and used a grey piece of card to model the motherboard:

Metallic Charcoal Grey and Metallic Crimson Red

Metallic Charcoal Grey, Pearl White and Crimson Red

These are the colors I think I've decided on:

Outside:

Inside:

That's it for now!

He is, kinda. He should get back to you soon, but it doesn't hurt to send another PM in case he overlooked it.

Fantastic Stren! I've been following this on your blog site. smile.gif

Quick question, how did you get the lower panels to line up with the rear panel frame flipped upside down (PSU on the bottom)? I also tried this and the spring clips ended up being slightly uneven from the rear to back on my TX10-D. I was thinking I could remove them, but I didn't see any additional holes to line them up. Custom mod on your part?

Looking forward to this! thumb.gif
